This cardigan is worked in top-down construction, which gives the knitter the opportunity to try on the sweater during the knitting process to get a customized fit, especially in length. The front of the sweater features a beautiful and classic cable with lace insert. It is easy to knit and instructions are included in charted and written out format.
The set-in sleeves are also worked from the top down by picking up stitches around the armhole, the sleeve caps are shaped by working short-rows and worked in the round to the desired sleeve length. Don’t let the short-row shaping intimidate you because it is much easier than it sounds. Great online tutorials in print and video format are available to assist in learning how to work short-rows.
However, for those knitters who would prefer to work sleeves the more traditional way, from the bottom-up and seamed, instructions are included.
